Wrestling Twitter's been abuzz since yesterday with rumored "big news", and PWInsider and others point to it being FloSlam, a new $20 per month (or $150 per year) streaming service from FloSports, a company WWE invested in back in August.
FloSports launched Roku and AppleTV apps earlier this month, and while there’s been no formal press release or launch announcement, the sign-up page which revealed the pricing promises streaming of live events, an archive of previously streamed shows which can be accessed on demand and original documentary content, focused on “elite pro wrestlers”.
In addition to WWE having a stake in the Austin, Texas company behind FloSlam, generating even more speculation is their website’s “People” section . It features wrestlers signed to WWE, Ring of Honor/New Japan and WWNLive. These could, of course, be placeholders, but combined with Insider’s report stating FloSlam “has been in contact with a number of top independent professional wrestling companies, discussing bringing that content to their platform”, industry insiders and fans alike are awaiting more detailed information from Flo and whatever promotions they’ll be working with regarding what looks to be a major new player in the business.
